A great anthology of one of my favourite poets with the added value of all eleven poems from Howls and Whispers - evocative and beautiful

Simply wonderful. A mine of joy, thoughtfulness, concern and care. I will treasure my copy, real food for the inner self.

I always felt a little ambivalent about Ted Hughes, he was a rather gorgeous, louche individual and as a fan of Sylvia Plath I - unfairly - felt uncertain of him and his poetry.
This book is an absolute must-have, what a revelation this poetry is of thoughtful, intelligent, incisive, lyrical poetry. Poems that stop you and leave you rolling the words in your mouth as if they were chocolate. It's a wonderful anthology, I haven't read it all, like chocolate it is something I return to again and again, an unsecret delight.

Just what I wanted but it is such a large volume that I will be dipping in and out rather than reading straight through. Perfect to have for reference.

Ted hughes the poet laureate until his death in 1998, is reknowned for his use of landscape and nature in poetry. It is this romanticism of nature that is so perfectly encapsulated in this book. In short, if you love Hughes and his poetry you will simply love this hardback book. No question!

This was given to me as a birthday present shortly after its publication; many of my individual anthologies by Hughes are showing the signs of wear and tear, i.e. intensive reading. Although I have always had the Hughes/Plath shelf, having all his works under one cover is a new experience, making it so easy to refer across individual anthologies. Following a theme is as simply as "Stickies".
This is not the place to comment on the quality, style and forms of such a vast collection of works, except to say this is a wonderful collection, well produced and edited sensibly. Although there is still a host of non-poetic works still to be collected, this is an excellent start.
Highly recommended.
